Bluewater Yachts are known for their superior handling, stability, and safety due to their low center of gravity philosophy. With a low CG, a large vessel becomes more stable and is less likely to sail and roll.

The modified-V hull with patented guardian lift system is designed for quick planning, greater speed, and better fuel efficiency.

The one piece hull strengthened with Kevlar is built safe and tough to protect you from those unexpected rough seas.

Stairways are wide and molded.

To further evidence the quality of a Bluewater Yacht, the company offers a lifetime transferrable hull warranty.

Less than 2' minimum draft on a 55 foot yacht makes for easy exploring.

Broker's Comments


There are only a couple 55' Bluewater Yacht's currently on the market and this one is just wrapping up a complete refit. Owner is spending over $100K in refurbishment costs.

With housing costs and taxes going through the roof, why not live on your own moving condo?

As with all Bluewater's, this one is very spacious and stable.
